stretching across many states. triple-digit heat reaches 120 degrees. where will it hit and when? first, abc's jim avila is on the scene where evacuations are under way. >> reporter: tonight, mandatory evacuations for hundreds as high winds and bone dry brush fueled the santa barbara county fire. burning to nearly four times its previous size in just 24 hours. this water cistern surrounded by firefighters into the night, destroyed by morning. a declaration of emergency bringing out hundreds of hand crews, air tankers, including converted passenger jets. that's a dc-10. helicopters and hot shot specialists on the ground. it's not just california. parts of the west could see their highest all-time temperatures by monday. in all, parts of 19 states, more than 70 million americans, under sweltering heat advisories. hydration essential. in memphis the heat index, 119. and in houston, tragedy.
a 3-year-old boy slipped unnoticed into the family car parked at his house, dying of heat exposure. neighbor marlene gonzalez witnessed the anguish. >> heartbreaking because i have three kids of my own, and when i seen it, it was sad. >> reporter: in the east, powerful storms along the midatlantic knocking out power to thousands. david, the 1,200 firefighters working the lines on this blaze are beginning to get the upper hand, but the temperatures are still soaring. david? >> jim avila leading us off tonight. jim, thank you. as we said at the top, the heat will be felt coast to coast. let's get right to meteorologist rob marciano live outside tonight. good evening. >> good evening. it's only going to get hotter especially out west, continued dry. and the winds will pick up. not good for the fire situation there. and if you work outside, look at these numbers. hydration is key. temperatures getting up and over 100 east of l.a. 120 plus in palm springs. that is all-time record stuff. in the plains, not as hot but
humid. again, going to feel like over 100 degrees in dallas. some of this feeding into severe storms tonight across the deep south. these watch boxes up in the next couple hours. 70-mile-per-hour winds with the storms. be aware of that. if you live in the hot zone, this weekend, certainly keep that water bottle handy. david? >> great advice, thank you. we move to major new developments in the meantime in the terror in orlando. abc news has learned the fbi has now obtained surveillance video from inside the orlando night club. multiple cameras, chilling scenes. they have not released the video. but sources are describing what they have seen. the gunman moving from room to room. abc's senior justice correspondent pierre thomas with what he's just learned. >> reporter: these chilling images, people struggling to survive the onslaught at the pulse nightclub, huddled together in the dark on the bathroom floor. >> stay with me, okay? >> reporter: but tonight we learn the fbi has obtained high quality security video, which captures the massacre in
horrific detail. surveillance cameras showing multiple angles in different rooms, from the patio to the dance floor to the lounge, previously, the only glimpse we had of the massacre, this moment, amanda alvear recording those first gunshots. her last moments alive. in the surveillance video, sources say, you can see the killer firing his assault rifle and systematically executing victims. one source familiar with the investigation tells abc news the video shows omar mateen walking through the rooms, mowing people down, cold blooded. a relentless assassin, reloading his weapon more than once. david, this video is critical because it gives a precise time line and shows so much of what actually happened. again just tragic. david. >> pierre, thank you. we are also learning more this evening about omar mateen and the laser focus this evening on his wife. we have also learned the gunman signed over his interest on a home he co-owned with his father, just two months before the massacre, taking his name
off the title for a mere $100. sources also telling abc news that mateen and his wife exchanged text messages during the rampage. abc's chief investigative correspondent brian ross. >> reporter: her family tonight says omar mateen's wife noor became a stranger to them once she got married. they say she is now telling them mateen beat her, just as his first wife, sitora, says she was treated. >> he wouldn't allow me to speak to my family. he would beat me as i tried to call them. >> reporter: and now the fbi is investigating whether mateen's current wife was somehow involved in or knew about the attack. recovering a brief text message they exchanged as it was happening, as she was apparently unaware of where he was. did you see the news, he asked. and then messages between the two, i love you. >> every mass murder is premeditated. she lived with him. she knows something. >> reporter: one of the many questions she can answer, why just two months ago mateen signed over his interest in a
home he co-owned with his father, for a mere $100. noor was one of the witnesses. and investigators want to know what she knew about the emerging contradictions of mateen's life, his secret life. as he filled out his application for a police academy just last year, mateen wrote that his parents told him to appreciate the blessings of being raised in a safe country and society. i want to pursue a career in public safety. i want the streets to be safe for my son, the way it was safe for me growing up. >> and brian, back with us tonight. it was last night here, you reported on the florida gun store that said it called the fbi weeks ago about a suspicious man that they now believe was omar mateen. the fbi responding to that tonight saying they did get back to the store. >> the owner claimed they never checked in. but the fbi strongly disputes the store owner's account. but they did go to the store but there was not enough information
to conduct what they call any meaningful investigative follow-up. >> two different accounts of the story. thank you. there are also new developments after the deadly alligator attack at disney world. the autopsy results revealed more about the death of 2-year-old lane graves today. disney keeping its beaches closed and today installing temporary barriers and new signs going up, warning of alligators. abc's gio benitez is in orlando. >> reporter: tonight, barriers going up at disney's grand floridian resort. workers blocking access to the same beach where 2-year-old lane graves was killed by an alligator. disney now saying, "we are installing signage and temporary barriers at our resort beach locations and are working on permanent, long-term solutions at our beaches. we are reinforcing training with our cast for reporting sightings and interactions with wildlife and are expanding our communication to guests on this topic." and our first look at those signs guests will see, warning of alligators. autopsy results show little lane died of drowning and traumatic injury, after he was grabbed by
an alligator in ankle-deep water. the animals can lunge at 20 to 30 miles per hour. >> in the blink of an eye that gator's from the water to its prey grabbing it and pulling it back in. i mean, in just tenths of a seconds. >> reporter: and experts warn tonight that tourists feeding alligators can make them more aggressive toward other guests at the resort. >> as a matter of fact, in the state of florida, it's against the law to feed wild alligators. because they are very easily trained. it's not as common knowledge but alligators can be trained to come to food. >> reporter: tonight back in nebraska, family and friends of the graves family offering support with prayers and blue ribbons. >> as a neighborhood we hope they just feel the love basically, of how much we care about them. >> reporter: tonight, i'm told disney will be putting up the alligator warning signs. around the rest of the property very soon. they're still trying to decide if they'll ever open those beaches again. david? >> thank you. there are new terms for the race for president tonight in this week as the

take on anti-gay terrorists. hillary clinton retweeting a quote of trump's, you tell me who is better for the gay community and who is better for women than donald trump? hillary clinton responding, hi. >> oprah would be great. >> reporter: he may have been joking. jimmy kimmel asked him about it. >> he would like to you be his running mate. >> i think he was joking about that. >> i don't think he was joking. >> i think he was. but okay. >> has he contacted you? >> have not gotten the call. >> if he did make the call, would you take the call? >> i would say, donald, i'm with her. >> oh, i see. [ cheers and applause ] >> reporter: what about oprah for president. >> for many years, i used to think, until this election year, i thought, why do people say that? i have no qualifications to run. i'm feeling pretty qualified. >> reporter: when it comes to gay rights, it's hillary clinton who supports gay marriage, not donald trump. even so, there is little doubt,
david, that trump is the most pro gay rights republican candidate we have ever seen. >> jon karl with us tonight, thanks, jon. overseas and the history making ruling concerning russia and the olympics. the entire russia track and field team barred today from competing in the summer games in rio because of a widespread doping scandal. president putin calling it unjust and unfair. how many medals did russia win over the americans last time? here is abc's matt gutman. >> reporter: tonight, for the first time in olympic history, a country's entire track and field team has been banned from the summer games. in a stunning rebuke of russia for its ongoing doping scandal, the world governing body for athletics, the iaaf, voted to ban all russian track and field athletes. >> finally, we have an international sports federation that is just saying enough. you cannot cheat and get away with it. >> reporter: in a blistering
300-page report released last fall, the world anti-doping agency found that russia committed 225 violations, the highest in the world. >> this is just a confirmation of russia's demise as a world power in sports. >> reporter: russia denies it engages in systemic doping. this is a big hit for the russians who won 18 medals in track and field at the london games. two of those medals were stripped from its dominant women's 800 meters team in london last year. too late for runner alysia montano. is it possible to rid the sport of cheating and doping? >> i hope so. i hope this is a lesson to the athletes that choose to do wrong and to steal from other athletes that are doing it right. >> reporter: david, that track and field body says russia even refuses to accept it has a doping problem. case in point, one russian sprinter we spoke to says she didn't understand why all athletes aren't allowed to dope. david?
